Muslim Migrants Demand Extra Prayer Breaks, New UPS Manager Has 5-Word Response

Muslim workers were banned from taking prayer breaks at a United Parcel Service (UPS) shipping warehouse in Minnesota and told not to use their bathroom breaks to pray, a lawsuit alleges.

Abdullahi Dahir and Abdifatah Hassan were fired from the company in 2014 after breaking alleged rules on praying that were enforced by a line manager. They filed the lawsuit last week against UPS and Doherty Staffing Solutions after a number of Muslim employees were let go.

Employees were reportedly allowed to pray during their break times before a new operations manager started enforcing new rules which allegedly prevented Muslim employees from praying during the day, The Star Tribune reported.

The operations manager named in the lawsuit allegedly called a meeting in which he asked staff to raise their hands if they needed to pray during working hours.

“After we raised our hands, he said that he would replace all of us,” Hassan alleged in the lawsuit.

Dahir and Hassan were told they could not pray unless it was during a scheduled break time, and they could not use their bathroom breaks for prayer time.

The two men are being represented by the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN), which filed the lawsuit in the 4th Judicial District Court of Minnesota on June 1.

“There is no lawful reason for any company to stop Muslims from praying when previously that company had allowed such prayers in a manner that did not impact the workplace,” CAIR-MN’s Civil Rights Director Amir Malik said in a statement.

“We believe that UPS Mail Innovations and Doherty Staffing Solutions withdrew this reasonable accommodation pretextually, in order to get rid of the Muslim employees.”

    I hope the muzzies lose. If there is any justice they will. I am in support of UPS, these muzzies are destroying and overtaking everything American. CAIR should be obliterated and all these dirt rats should go back to their sandholes in their country where they can pray all day long
    They ate not wanted nor needed here. Better America without them. Go away.

    Stop hiring these animals. There is a simple solution to the problem, don’t hire the terrorists. If these companies would not hire them maybe they would move to New York. Their mayor just loves them…

    How come it IS that – – unlike Christians – – they cannot PRAY and TALK TO GOD WHILE THEY WORK – – with NO ONE ELSE HAVING TO KNOW ABOUT IT. – – – it’s the story of the Pharisees again. (uh – – haven’t HEARD that one – – not in the KORAN – – it’s in the BIBLE.)
